Rand Paul: Dems Should Be "Embarrassed" To Be Seen With Bill Clinton


SEN. RAND PAUL: I think the Democrats mistake Bill Clinton’s popularity, we have a lot of conservative Democrats in our state who go to church each week and really don’t approve of his behavior — what he’s done with women, with sexual harassment in the workplace. A lot of Democrats in our state don't approve of that kind of behavior. So I think, really, having him as some sort of role model for the Democrat party is something they ought to rethink because there are a lot of people who don't agree with that kind of values.

PAUL: I don't think Bill Clinton is so much an issue -- his behavior and the way he's treated women through the years -- it's really an issue about whether you want him as a role model and whether you want him as the leader in your party. It doesn’t directly reflect on Hillary, but it is a little hard to escape the association and that he’s a big fundraiser. I personally think like Alison Grimes, in our state who is running for senate, I would return anybody that would associated with Bill Clinton, I think he's a bad role model for the workplace, for women's rights for all of that. And I think really, frankly, they ought to be a little embarrassed to be associated or being seen with him.
